Happy Wednesday folks! It will now be a while until D.C. United is back at Buzzard Point, so hopefully Mother Nature will take that time to finally prepare a warm weather match for us to enjoy when the team returns.
Before the kicks begin, we’ve noticed some comments still expressing issues logging into WordPress, namely, where WordPress states that it cannot find your credentials. I also had this problem when we first started. The below steps have worked for me and I have not had to log in since.
Step 1: Log in using WordPress.
Step 2: On the Jetpack link asking you to connect with WordPress.com, click “Get help setting up Jetpack”
Step 3: Rather than filling out anything on the following page, go to the top right, select your account avatar, and select “Manage your sites”
Step 4: This should bring you to an approval page to link Jetpack.com and WordPress.com accounts. Select approve.
At this point, you can log in normally on Step 1 and everything should hopefully work. If it does not, please let us know so that we may continue to troubleshoot.
Now… to the kicks!
Lewis O’Brien seems to be acclimating well to the new locker room. I may be more optimistic than most about this season, but if players can get and stay healthy, I see a string of results going in United’s favor in the future. The season is young and teams can always get hot down the road.
Power Rankings: LAFC remain elite, LA Galaxy slide before El Trafico (MLS): D.C. United’s results aren’t going their way, but other teams in the league are also known to be struggling in ways that, if I may be so bold, are worse than the Black-and-Red’s.
Swanson undergoes knee surgery, offers no USWNT return timeline (Pro Soccer Wire): Mallory Swanson will begin her recovery after a successful surgery yesterday. May it be a speedy one.
Speaking of players out for the long haul, Eryk Williamson’s 2023 has ended prematurely.
Expect the USMNT roster for its upcoming match against Mexico to be announced today.
The Vanzeir saga continues with Dante Vanzeir stepping away from the club indefinitely. More on this story to come I’m sure.
Who doesn’t enjoy looking at new kits? The Maryland Bobcats released their 2023 home kit and goalkeeper kit. As a MoCo resident, I feel quite biased toward loving that home kit.
And for those who may have missed the Annapolis Blues kit…
That’s all for now. Send your own kicks in the comments below!
